Former Sunderland striker Kevin Phillips sees Rangers out-of-contract midfielder Jordan Rossiter as an ideal signing for Sunderland.
Rangers have made it clear that they won’t be giving any contract extension to their midfielder Jordan Rossiter when his contract expires on 31 May.
The 23-year-old midfielder is currently on loan at Fleetwood town but will become a free agent at the end of the season.
Phillips believes that with the financial crisis that the pandemic has imposed upon his former side, signing free agents could be the way going forward. Speaking to Football Insider, he said:
That is the sort of business that a lot of clubs are going to have to result to. They will be looking at players that have been released at other clubs but have got the experience in League One and get them in on a contract that suits both parties. It is the sign of the times for the foreseeable future.
Clubs are going to have to wheel and deal. Unfortunately, that is the window they will be shopping in. Rossiter had a big reputation before he moved to Rangers.
